More to contend with

Postby chookie » Sat Mar 09, 2013 3:29 pm

I have just got over the bronchitis and costochondritis that I had the last week or so and now I have other horrible things going on with me. I recently had restless legs for a few nights, sleeping with a bar of soap to make it go away. I did get better but last night was the worst, it was all over me and I didn't get much sleep.

I had to prop myself up in bed as I can't sleep on my side or completely flat, my lungs feel like they are being crushed and I can't breathe. The cold air on my arms made them feel like they are burning, my stomach feels empty/not hungry/indigestion, my scalp is so itchy and so on.

I still feel like this today, sitting on the sofa wrapped up warm but I don't know what to do with myself. My eyes are tired, my brain is switched on but foggy and I don't feel like my lungs could take any exercise outside.

:hugs:
you just absolutely totally described me for the last week there! :(
last night i just totally lost it because i was so frustrated. i hate getting cross with my children but sometimes EVERYTHING DOES MY ****ING HEAD IN!!!
not knowing what to do to get relief is so frustrating. painkillers don't seem to work for me. is that because it's not 'real' pain??

i hope you feel better tonight.
whats with the bar of soap thing?? does a bottle of liquid soap work too??!!! :crazy: ;-)
AARRRGGGHHHHH
hmmm, thats better. :pull-hair:

oh dear the pair of you, hope you start ot feel a little better over the next few days, I have extra pain at the moment but I think its down to my own stupid fault.

I am intrigued to know what the bar of soap does to help restless legs :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: Have you had a med review recently :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: If not it may help to go and see your doc and review both what you are on and how you take them :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
